Saturday Stitching: Fox and Rabbit MSAL – March Pt. 1

Because I was working on a baby blanket most of this week, I’ve only just started on the March portion of Changing Seasons, the 2022 Mystery Stitch-A-Long by Fox and Rabbit.

The corners of the inner frame have flowers, and I’ve decided to do each one in a single color so orange, lilac, teal and mauve. The stems are being done in a very light green/metallic green blend. The metallic green is by Artiste, and it’s much easier to use than the metallic silver also by Artiste that I’m using for the outer frame. The other floss is DMC.

The flower is about 3/4 done. I’m doing the single line in half stitch dark green, and the arrow part will be done in variegated greens once I frog what I’ve already stitched because I did it wrong. I’m also making the corner blocks as I work around the piece. I hope to have more of it done by next week.

See you on the flipside and don’t forget your towel and sonic screwdriver!!

YouTube Tuesday: Priscilla and Chelsea Real Housewives of Cross Stitch

I heard about this mother/daughter duo on FlossTube from thenineoneone stitcher who is also on Flosstube. Flosstube is a group of folks on YouTube who share their love of cross stitching with everyone else in the world. No, I very much doubt I will ever join their ranks. This said, I do enjoy watching these videos, and I’ve subscribed to several.

Priscilla and Chelsea are actual mother and daughter, and they seem to have a great time together in the videos. They joke around, tease and just have a good time all while showing off their stunning work. I am actually watching their channel from the very beginning while stitching on my two projects.

I must say, I can’t see how people can simply start several projects at once without really finishing something first. That would drive me crazy. I am lucky one of my projects is a monthly thing so I complete it and then wait until the following month for the next part. This leaves me time to work on the second project.

Still, I’m sharing their very first video with you because I was so charmed by it, and I’m hoping you will be too:

I really like the creative way they finish their work too. I’ve not seen most of them before, and I want to complete one of my projects like one of theirs.

If you like the video, please Like, Comment and if you feel like it, Subscribe!! This pair is worth watching!!

YouTube Tuesday: Fox and Rabbit on Flosstube!

For those of you who don’t know, Fox and Rabbit Designs is the producer of the Mystery Sampler Stitch-A-Long I did last year and am seriously considering doing again this year – it depends on what February’s part is going to be.

I found a lovely lady on YouTube’s Flosstube series which features different people showing off their cross stitch work. Many are designers while others, like myself, are happy stitchers who love finding new projects to do. I decided to see if I could find Fox and Rabbit on YouTube – they have a Facebook group so why not a channel on YouTube??

I found them, and I was happy to put proper names and faces to the pair!!

This is just one of their wonderful videos I’ve managed to have time to watch. I am planning to watch all of the ones I can find. They not only talk about themselves, their designs, their projects but also their animals and their personal lives – to a degree. I’ve gotten to #5 of their videos and so far, they’ve done giveaways in each one!

I am very happy to have found them, I even found a couple of places that sell their hand dyed linen. They’re not local, but they are in the same state as myself so I might be making a road trip to check out the fabrics in person!! The dyed linen I’ve seen so far are fabulous!!

I highly recommend checking them out and giving them a Like if nothing else!!

Linen and Threads MSAL Update: March

For those of you who don’t know what a MSAL is, it means Mystery Sampler Stitch – A – Long. The one I’m involved with currently is hosted by Linen and Threads. It’s free to join up so please, do so. I found out about this one from Anna at My (mis?)adventures with yarn.

This works on a monthly basis with parts of a large sampler being published once a month. There are three currently available on the site, and I’ve done almost all three. I forgot to take a picture of what I’d done in January, but I did remember to take one of the block released in February. I’m nearly done with this month’s part, and I’ll post a picture of it next month when I do my update.

The designer is allowing us to choose our own colors and since it’s based on Talavera pottery, I chose these for the first block. There are at least six blocks in all by the way the outline was done – you’ll see what I mean next month. Each sampler will be one of a kind, and I’m planning on either auctioning off or raffling off mine for charity.

Please post if you decide to stitch along with myself and Anna, I think she’d enjoy having more people to stitch with!

I’ll see you on the flipside and don’t forget your towel and sonic screwdriver!!
